Bicycle boulevard projects provide a low-speed environment on quiet, low-traffic streets where more people feel comfortable to ride.
- Slower traffic and less rat-running on residential streets
- Increase awareness of people riding bikes along the street
- Safer, more visible and more predictable riding position for cyclists
- Safer crossings of main roads that intersect the route
Levels - City Bikeway
The Levels-City Bikeway connects the City with Mawson Lakes. DPTI and local councils are upgrading the existing bikeway.
DPTI is investigating options to improve safety of the crossing of Regency Road at the junction with Galway Avenue, Broadview. Crossing Regency Road while walking or cycling is difficult due to the high volume of traffic and vehicle turning movements at Galway Avenue.
DPTI is considering feedback received during the consultation period on the concept options:
- Option 1: Install a signalised bicycle and pedestrian crossing on Regency Road between Galway Avenue and Beaven Avenue.
- Option 2: Install a signalised T-junction at Galway Avenue and Regency Road.
The design of the crossing is being coordinated with the City of Port Adelaide Enfield’s Broadview, Enfield and Clearview (South) Local Area Traffic Management (LATM) Study. The LATM Study is proposing bicycle friendly flat top road humps along the Robert Avenue segment of the bikeway. For more information, visit the LATM Study website.
Completed improvements include:
- Signalised bicycle crossing of North East Road at Galway Avenue
- A new median refuge to provide a safer crossing of Grand Junction Road
Belair - City Bikeway
The Belair-City Bikeway will connect the Frome Street Bikeway with Belair via Rugby Street and Porter Street. This bicycle boulevard will provide a safer and more comfortable alternative to travelling on busy Unley Road and Belair Road.
Current works include new signalised bicycle and pedestrian crossings at the Cross Road junction with Rugby Street, Kingswood and the Greenhill Road junction with Porter Street, Parkside. Works are expected to be completed by October 2016, weather permitting.
The City of Unley is seeking feedback on proposed changes to the bicycle boulevard route along Rugby and Porter Streets, including traffic priority changes to improve efficiency and continuity of the route, and safety improvements. View the proposal here and provide feedback until August 31 2016.

The Norwood - Magill Bicycle Boulevard project is improving Beulah Road, Norwood and Rundle Street, Kent Town
Future works include:
- Traffic calming and sharrows along Beulah Road, Norwood by the City of Norwood, Payneham and St Peters
- Wayfinding signage along the route
- Extending bike lanes on Rundle Street from College Street to Fullarton Road.
Community consultation on extending the Rundle Street bike lanes was undertaken in August and September 2015. You can review the current concept plan here. DPTI is revising the proposal based on feedback received during the comment period.
Completed improvements include:
- A new median refuge to provide a safer crossing of Fullarton Road (installed as part of the Fullarton Road Upgrade project)
- A raised junction to slow traffic and address crashes at the intersection of Rundle Street / The Parade West (a Responsive Road Safety project)
- Traffic calming along sections of Beulah Road within the City of Burnside
- A new bicycle and pedestrian signal to provide a safer crossing of Portrush Road
- Safety improvements to slow motor vehicles at 6 roundabouts along Beulah Road
Prospect Bicycle Boulevard
The Prospect Bicycle Boulevard project is improving Braund Road, Fitzroy and linking streets through Prospect.
Construction on a bicycle and pedestrian crossing of Regency Road commenced in August 2016 and is expected to be completed in September 2016. Works include the installation of a median refuge to allow people cycling and walking to safety cross Regency Road as well as street lighting upgrades.
Upcoming works include:
- A series of six raised intersections along Braund Road between Le Hunte Avenue and Marian Place. The raised plateaus will create a safer and more comfortable cycling environment by slowing motor vehicle speeds. They will also address the crash history at several locations.
- Sharrows and wayfinding signage along the route
The raised intersections are proposed to be installed in two phases. Funding is available for Phase 1 which includes works within the vicinity of Prospect Primary School. Council and DPTI are seeking federal funding for Phase 2.
Phase 1 construction, which includes raised intersections at Le Hunte Avenue, Gladstone Road and Olive Street, is anticipated to begin in late 2016.
